In the months of July and August, Sahara Motors donated $100 to White Pine County School District’s sport program for each retail vehicle old.

“We were excited when Maggie Holmes, our F&I manager, came up with this great idea,” said Sandi Greathouse, owner of Sahara Motors. “Right away Chuck Hutton, our salesman, starting announcing it on his morning radio show. We instantly had such a positive response.”

Various local businesses donated gift certificates for the dealership to give to customers that purchased vehicles during that time, and the Nevada Northern Railway donated tickets to ride the train.

“We would like to thank Nevada Northern Railway, Steadyline Tattoos, Bath Lumber, Sportsworld, All Aboard Café, Economy Drug, Flower Basket, Marie’s Café, White Pine Golf Course, Precision Auto, Cruise In, Evah’s Restaurant, Silver Sage Travel Center, Images Salon, Andy’s Western Shop and McGill Antiques and Collectables for their generous donations to help make this a huge success,” Greathouse said. “We would also like to thank the 75 people that purchased vehicles from us in July and August. We are thrilled to donate $7,500 to the White Pine County School Districts’ sports program.”

Greathouse said that Superintendent Adam Young and his crew determined that White Pine Middle School would benefit most from the donation.

“We are pleased that we could be a small part of such an important fundraising effort in our community to help keep the school sports programs going,” Greathouse said. “Thank you to everyone that has helped make our business a success so we are able to contribute to our community.”
